    Answer: (4)  25 %
    Explanation:-
    A dishonest dealer professes to sell his goods at cost price but he uses a weight of 800 g for a kg weight.
    1 kg = 1000 g
    Then, the gain = 1000 – 800
    = 200 g

    Gain percent = 200 x 100/800
    = 200/8
    = 25 %

    Then, the gain percent is 25 %.
    Hence, the answer is (4) 25 %.
